Game Notes

3rd Prussian are still more than 16” from nearest enemy and can take multiple moves to occupy form and deploy their artillery

Rule 5 covers multiple moves.

1 Polish brigade moves forward to support 4 brigade in skirmish fight against 2 Prussian

Rule 11 covers skirmish combat

2 Prussian brigade is losing the skirmish combat

They move forward 2”, form line and start firefight

A firefight is more decisive than a skirmish

2 Prussian win the firefight, but receive 1 casualty

4 Polish lose the fight, receive 2 casualties, and shaken and retreat 4”

Rule 12 covers infantry firefight

Cavalry are not allowed to be within 4” of infantry, unless they are charging them

Prussian square advanced 2” towards Polish lancers, who then had to retreat 2”

This will protect the left flank of 4th corps attack on XIII corps

Rule 5 covers defence zones.
